    Hugo Energy App for Smart Meters

    I've had this app installed for a week or so now. I hadn't heard of Hugo until another member posted a link in another thread. It's a great idea and I'm quite impressed with the app overall. It's a LOT better than the SECURE home monitor I have. I can set budgets, look at hourly usage of gas...

    SMART info advice

    I've just bought a re-certified WD Red 6tb drive, and I'm attempting to understand the S.M.A.R.T info after running an extended test using WD Data Lifeguard on it. Would you say this is worth returning? I'm concerned how low some of the Values are. Any advice would be appreciated.
